A 48-year-old man has been charged with murder, after being arrested in Inverell over the death of Central Coast woman Leisl Smith.
Smith was last seen leaving her Wallarah home in August of 2012, and her car was found abandoned at Tuggerah Railway Station more than a month later.
Police conducted a number of searches at the time, including at properties at Wallarah, Brookfield, and on the Golden Highway at Merriwa.

He was taken to Inverell Police Station where he was charged with murder.
